On Sunday I attempted to make bread. I had never tried before and I felt like it was about time. Wow, did I bomb it. It was super hard to knead. I thought I might pass out. Husband tried to relieve me, but the dough was tough for him too. So I put it in a bowl to rise. It never happened, it just hardened and looked like a rock. I was furious that I didn't get it right the first time. I can usually get most things to turn out decent on my first try.
The next day I went to the store to buy some ingredients to make the whole wheat bread from the Lion's House cookbook. I also used a different attachment for my mixer. And what do you know it worked. Hurray! Glad I didn't give up. It was super yummy and filing bread. What a big difference between store bought bread and homemade.

at Farrell's. My dad remembered going to Farrell's as a kid. He and my mom came down to visit a week ago and treated us. The ice cream is by no means amazing, but there is a really fun vibe and atmosphere. The people working there keep up such a high energy and get the crowd into it. They had us all stand up and sing a little song about us being Pigs. Well my dad and I sang. Oma and the girls got a little stage fright I think. I was really surprised that Big Sis didn't have a stomach ache that night.

Wow a whole month has gone by since Husband had his birthday. For his birthday the past few years he has asked to go camping. This year we did it. We drove up to Carpenteria with our good friends and had a great time, despite the fact that there was no surf and it was cloudy almost all day.
The camp host loved these guys. They cleared the sand from the parking spots. She even made them an award for the "camper of the month".
